can the obama campaign going to stop talking about the debate. they cannot seem to turn the page from the debate. any conversation about that debate, i assume helped mitt romney. that is the reality that is beginning to set in scores of new polls show governor romney now taking control of this race. gallop poll of likely vothers have governor romney with a two point lead over the president nationally, and pew polling with a 4 point lead, and wiping out the president's 18 points september advantage with women. the two candidates are now tied at 47% with female voters. public policy polling today, they left leaning polling has governor romney with a 2. lead nationally, the first time that gov hegovernor had a lead in thl all year, and rasmussen report, average of poll rults with 11 swing states, including florida, michigan, ohio and pennsylvania, shows governor romney up on the president 49 to 47%. president obama has held the lead in poll for 17 of previous 19 days, that is all changed. we take all of that up here tonight. we'll talk with republican national committee communication dir
would say good news politically for president obama because now the talking point that republicans have used effectively for quite some time to say, you know, 42 straight months of an unemployment over 8%, unemployment had been over 8% every month since barack obama took office, they no longer can say that. to your point it didn't drop to 4%, it's still 7.8%. i would say if you ask barack obama on the day he took office if he -- if he thought unemployment at 7.8% would be okay in the month before he needed to run for re-election, he would not be happy with that number, but it's about the trend line, the trend line suggests and again, one month is not determinative but suggests that perhaps things are the economy is strengthening a little bit. that's the argument obama needs. he needs data points to say it's not perfect, i know that, not everything i've done is perfect to fix it, but it's slowly but surely a lurching toward getting better. >> the republicans will focus on the slowly part of that, only 114,000 new jobs added, anemic by any measure and the overall growth of the economy is
looked into the camera and addressed us. and mitt romney didn't do that. >> i like how obama talked about the middle class. i personally don't know any millionaires. and there is a lot more of us, the middle class. >> reporter: the two latino women there said they were leaning toward the president, the exact group of voters he hopes will help him win this state. on the other hand, some supporters may be slipping away. >> made a lot of promises four years ago. and we've had four years to watch a lot of that not happen. >> you voted for obama last time? >> yes. i'm a lot more suspicious and guarded. >> the question i have is four years really enough to follow through on these promises. can all of president obama's promises he made four years ago really be done in four years? >> what do you think? is four years enough? >> i don't think so. >> reporter: and they all wish they'd had a fact checker standing by to sort through the flurry of claims and counter claims. is romney really not seeking a $5 trillion tax cut? will people be able to keep their health insurance under the president's plan?
in the emergency room? why didn't obama say that? you talk about social security and medicare people? they're part of your 47%, you want to drop them from the list of eligible americans. you don't have any care for these people, we've got it on tape governor. what you think of these people. don't come out here and pretend that you care about old people because you met somebody at the campaign event. where was obama tonight? he should watch -- well not just "hardball", rachel, he should watch you, the reverend al, lawrence, there's a hot debate going on in this country, here on this network is where we're having the debate. we have our knives out we go after the people and the facts. what was he doing tonight? he went in there disarmed. he was wait an hour and a half, i think i can get through this thing. where as romney. i loved the split screen, staring at obama, addressing him. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i've got to beat him. and i don't care what this guy moderator whatever he think he ises because i'm going to ignore him. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he was
of the pivot which president obama's talked about the pivot to the pacific has been generally thought of as the way forward and the coming 20 years so it's hard to see where governor romney ends up on providing new alternatives. one thing sort of surprised me why hasn't he played general eisenhower, vote for me, i'll end the war in afghanistan as opposed to korea? so the notion that an aggressive approach to the war in afghanistan i think is weakest thought of all. >> certainly the message that they're trying to evoke today is peace through strength. there's governor bob mcdonald speaking before mitt romney. one thing to check in on is how the others on the ticket are doing and more developing news to discuss with vice presidential nominee paul ryan to talk to voters in the northwestern ohio town of swanton. it's swing for the republican ticket looking to make gains in the all-important battleground state of ohio and point out early voting is under way. ron motte joins me now from telephone. what are we expecting today? >> reporter: there, thomas. probably a few minutes from getting s
balance he's insisting that romney has changed his plan because he wasn't giving the obama talking points. >> well now hold on. >> the democrats have mischaracterized romney's plans up the ying yang. so when he comes forward and tells what his plans are it's a shock. they think he's lying, they think he's changed. >> it was a game changer in this respect. before the debate republicans around the country were wondering if mitt romney was going to take down the whole ticket because his campaign had been so ineffective. after the debate they were convinced he wasn't going to. he definitely had a good evening last night. whether or not it's enough to change the momentum in the race we'll know in the next few days. with respect to the plan all the democrats have done ills put a price tag. 20% across the board tax cuts make them permanent. >> that's a lie. what he said it's going to be cost neutral. >> he didn't say that until last night. >> that is just not right. he said it when he rolled it out. he said it in his speeches. >> he hasn't said how he's going to raise any revenue to make up for
policy, obama is actually steadfast -- you know, you talk to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he has been dodging them. he talks to them, you know, like a leader, just like obama held in his head up high in the debate and he didn't have his head down, looking down like everybody said that he did. as far as the media, i think a lot of people just kind of took and followed with the media was saying as far as what he was talking about. what the media was talking about when he said that obama didn't hold his head up high. i think he was very presidential , i think that he was very calm, i think that mitt romney was desperate. >> host: we will get the candidates to debate on policy specifically in the coming weeks. but can he reflect on the earlier part of what he is saying? >> guest: yes, clearly, one of the common questions. i think romney is determined to make a trip to europe and israel and then to london where he criticized the preparation for the london olympics games. he went to poland, he went to israel, the democrats have tried to emphasize what they see
childhood obesity. mrs. obama talked about how comfortable the president is around women. >> this is one of the things i love about barack, he is so used to having strong women in his life. you know, it's odd. i tell him that this is somehow, you know, god keeping his testosterone in check. because really he is surrounded by women. >> the first lady says she no longer has doubts that they're doing what is best for their family and for the country as well. >>> the search for a missing fifth grader near denver is still coming up police looked for jessica ridgeway. vanished on her way off to school friday a backpack believed to belong to her was found six miles away. hundred of volunteers have been assisting in the search. >>> major change in american religious life. for the first time in history, the u.s. does not have a protestant majority according to a study released overnight. among the reasons, a growing number of american whose say they have no preligion. one in five say they do not belong to a religion. interesting peek into the spiritual state of the nation. >> first time dropped b
. when we come back we'll tell you what president obama did right and talk about which pundits and politicians actually got it right before the debate. >> so i have absolute confidence when we get to thursday morning, we'll be shaking our head it's a brand new race. >> cenk: it sucks that he was right. did president obama take it easy on romney because fox has been charging over the last two days he's an angry black man? >> what is happening in new orleans? what is your dollar? where is your money? (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. >> you know, blaming this economy on barack obama is kinda like blaming your hangover on the guy making breakfast. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. this campaign has become so toxic, beverly hills housewives are now injecting it into their foreheads. (vo) so current gave him a weekly show. >> i love romney's debate style, but i tell you, if i could be that stiff for 90 minutes, i'd ... (vo) we probably won't regret it. alright let's break it down. mom, pop it. ♪ ♪ two inches apart,
. the bombshell of the widely covered speech at hampton university features senator obama talking about the federal government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we didn't expect you to come up with the almighty hand. down in new orleans, where's your dollar? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> conservative pundits defined this as racial rhetoric obama makes the point that problem's actions were not racial bias. >> look at what happened in new orleans and the gulf coast when katrina hit. people asked me if they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. no, this administration was color-blind in its incompetence, but everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> while the video does, perhaps, notding the president' at re-election, dusting off the vintage tape does return the focus to the man the gop wishes would actually disappear or shape shift into a nonhuman form. president george w. bush. >> if the republicans want to
do all the talking for them because he makes compelling case against obama. this is the second or third gaffe just this week. we are talking about almost all of the increase on the backs of businesses. it is hard to understand how you create more jobs for this economy if you are putting or taking money out of the pockets of the businesses that create them. joe biden was saying we are proud of the fact we are socking it to the businesses and to the rich people. i find it somewhat offensive, actually. >> is there any way when you raise people's taxes by $1 trillion the middle class is unaffected? >>guest: it is interesting if you look at congressional budget office report and i seldom cite the c.b.o., they say that if you do the fiscal cliff and the huge tax increase next year we don't have less than percent unemployment, we go up to over 9 percent unemployment, a double dip recession. that is not moving failure, that is moving backward. >> today we learned the 2012 deficit had exceeded, now, $1.1 trillion. more than $1 trillion, four years in a row. >>guest: what a record. that
analyzing what obama said that was untrue and what mitt romney said that was untrue. let's talk about mitt romney's tax plan. he wants to cut everyone's rate by 21%. is it true that that would cost $5 trillion? yes or no? >> reporter: well the question is how do you shape it? the question for romney is not necessarily that he's telling an untruth it's that he's not giving us any of the details. he says he can reduce rates and not a net tax decrease because he'll get rid of loopholes? which hoop holes will you get rid of? he named cutting funding for pbs. that's a small part of the budget. it's not necessarily that he's saying an untruth it's just that he's not filling in this very big and important part of the equation. >> which is how you make up for it. >> thank you. frank luntz talked to undecided voters. in the next half hour we'll hear what they had to say and how that could impact the race. >>> violence in syria spread into turkey. turkish are a littlery pounded syria throughout night and a new crisis began wednesday when a mortar fire from syria landed in a turkish border town. holl
, but a senior obama campaign adviser talked about it this morning. >> if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response, i'm sure the president would give him time during the debate to do that. >> an attempt to change the subject from romney's comments made in a video that surfaced last month. he said 47% of americans are dependent on the government. tara for cbs news, the white house. >> now we should note that the romney campaign says it had nothing to do with the release of that video tape. or the rerelease of the video tape of that speech since it happened five years ago and was covered at the time. but joining me now here at u.s.a. today election headquarters is paul singer. he is politics editor and he'll be taking part in the fact check that will keep you up to date on what's going on in that debate tonight. you have poll numbers that have been rolling over, giving us an idea of who is up and who is doing. show it to us on the computer. >> we have this poll tracker which we have built with our partners. it gives you the opportunity to go through and see in t
increase across the board, and when obama talks about the middle class and protecting the 47%, let's use the 47%, the truth is in retail business, this is has an effect on every product sold in the stores. when you buy -- neil: why more of an effect on the polls? >> they are not talking about. i don't know why they are not talking about it. go out, speak to the retailers, the business people that we've been speaking to, and this is what they'll hear. they are going to hear that they are getting squeezed dramatically. they are getting squeezed from all sides, and 5 lot of it -- a lot is basedded on what they pay because of fuel. in addition to that -- neil: no doubt. do you think there's a disconnect, bernie, between the bosses and the folks who work for them? in other words, talk to consumers and their surveys. they are not robust or off the charts, but better than the bosses polled on the same question, and seem much more pessimistic. >> well, they are pessimistic. the problem is most employers are not explaning this to their employees. they are not going to the employees saying, hey, l
a lot of this campaign is mitt romney and barack obama talking about how they would work in washington. and as we know the american public are so frustrated right now with how washington is operating or is not operating at all. so there's a lot on the line for mitt romney, barack obama tomorrow night. tens of millions of people will be watching. of course, a lot here on cnn. there is over 3,000 journalists who are actually credentialed to come and cover this debate. 700 of them are from other countries. so the whole world will be watching. >> and jim lahr is the moderator for debate number one. how long do the candidates get to answer the questions? because some candidates are pretty long-winded. >> reporter: they are, and that's going to be the struggle and one of the challenges for the moderator torrow as well as the other debate moderators, including candy crowley who will be moderating a debate later this month. 30 seconds to about a minute to answer a question. and of course there's a rebut l rebuttal. if we do see sharp exchange back and forth, sometimes the train can get off th
. i have a problem of characterizing it as racism and i think it was pointing to obama talking to an audience. >> it was still running in the press. days after the debate, the one that did not favor obama, we know this is the nature of campaigns. how could resurface and point the finger at the other guys? >> up next after this break, what is my husband doing here? talking about marriage, affairs, wall street, and scandals. you will find out after this break when he joins me live. stay tuned. and the most disturbing story of this day, this girl suffering from cerebral palsy, teased by another kid and his father. the video and the fallout is coming up just ahead who would think that a grown man would tease a 10-year-old disabled girl. it that has never done anything to them for no reason or it now she doesn't want to get on the bus and go to school. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. boom! get it! spin!
obama. >> you talked about mr. romney's debate performance. we know the vice presidential debate is this week and there had been memorable moments before. we remember this from four years ago. >> nice to meet you. hey, can i call you joe? >> you can call me joe. >> can i call you joe. that was sarah palin holding her own against joe biden and this memorable moment from 1998 debate, vice presidential candidate lloyd bentsen saying this to dan quayle as he said he he had as much experience as jfk. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> two very memorable lines but you made an interesting observation. >> they are quite famous but both were uttered by losing candidates. paul ryan and joe biden know the stakes are huge for this debate. this is brand-new terrain for ryan. biden has more pressure on him than last week after the man at the top of the ticket did not deliver. >> rick klein with the bigger picture, thank you. >>> a reminder right here, "one on one, the candidates debate" on thursday night, diane and george right at the desk. jake tapper an
are differences we can talk about, whether that's under obama care or not. but let's have the philosophical difference. he believes the competition is going to drive it. there was a pole today. 93% of seniors like medicare the way it is. >> wait. they're not going to like the 716. >> at the very early polling right after the debate, did the president seem to falter at all? >> previous debate performances haven't been that strong. for all of the joking about the expectation, the president is really good at conversation and speeches. debates have been a little more of an awkward format. again, i thought governor romney won tonight in terms of what was in front of us. i think we're going to see some fallout from that. so, you know, i think what the president did was he was slow. he was deliberative. he laid out facts. this was a policy dream to have these long answers with lots of facts. we were joking before about the old saturday night live skit where they thought there would be no mass. >> when you're the incumbent, i've been there, it's more difficult. it just is. >> and on that note, let'
you agree with, tap agree. >> reporter: president obama got his biggest spike of support when talking about education. when mr. romney after a fairly positive reception, his opening remarks did not fair nearly as well with the liberal leaning college crowd as the debate went on. as a journalist, i have to mention it wasn't just romney and obama that they were weighing in on tonight. they also weighed in on the moderator who got rave reviews for the most part. major spikes online. anita. >> interesting. okay. well, we decided to have a little fun as well with tonight's debate. we posted four words and asked our friends out there count them. how many times are they saying them. joining us now is our social media editor. when the bug words came up with what we as journalists are expecting from the debate. >> we had an informal news poll and the words we came up with were middle class, jobs, economy, and american people. president obama mentioned the middle class and income 18 times and mitt romney's most said word was job and jobs which he mentioned 23 times. american people was the leas
obama doesn't seem inclineed to talk directly to the liberals. both campaigns sorely so -- clearly see the independent vote in the middle. the obama side either deciding the race or romney's side pushing them into the margin of error that right now has them on the losing end. and those campaigns are almost word-for-word, brian, said the exact same thing. tomorrow, we're talking to independents. >> tom fitzgerald tonight. the debate airs tomorrow at 9:00 p.m. i'll have a completianup on the news edge at 10 and the news edge at 11. >>> another big story tonight, today marks 10 years since the d.c. sniper's terrorized our region. ten people were killed during a three-week shooting spree. three people were shot and survived. mohammad and malvo were captured and convicted. mohammad executed in 2009, and malvo serving a life sentence and paul paul wagner and i covered the attacks extensively and we'll talk about some new developments and it's well- covered you smoke with charles moose. i spoke with him about three years or so ago and found a different person then than during the attacks and
the obama camp coming next. >> players talk about what they need to do to keep last night's disappointing when from -- loss from carrying over. >> the forecast is coming next. 52 at the airport. 56 near the inner harbor. >> live, local, late-breaking. this is wbal tv 11 news at 6:00 p.m. with rob daniels and donna hamilton, your insta-weatherplus forecast with chief meteorologist tom tasselmyer, sports, and skyteam 11 covering breaking news. >> more people have been infected with a deadly fungal meningitis from contaminated steroid injections. five cases in maryland. the total number has soared to 105 of people second and the number of deaths is at 8. the tainted steroids were used in injection's given to back pain patients july through september. the massachusetts pharmacy has recalled all its products. health officials say 76 medical facilities in 23 states receive the contaminated injections. for complete list, you can go to our website, wbaltv.com and click on medical alert. new polls show the race for the white house is tightening more with republican presidential nominee mitt romney
to make obama be the one who is dividing and talking about class warfare. romney's choice of word about middle income is interesting. >> the focus group gave president obama points for taking on governor romney for not having a back up plan on obama care. let's show that club. >> you said that he's going to lose deductions and loopholes. for his tax plan. but we don't know the details. he says that he's going to replace dodd-frank, wall street reform but we don't know exactly which ones. he won't tell us. he now says he'll replace obama care and assure all the good things in it will be in there, and you don't have to worry. >> frank this seems to be getting at the point that david axelrod and david plouffe were making after the debate in trying to spin this is that romney is a secret guy, he won't tell you what he's going to do when he gets rid of obama care or what he's going to do on taxes but did obama effectively make that case? >> he made the case. and that was one of the rare case where the republicans were dialing him at a 60 which is a relatively positive. the difference here is
address, president obama talks about the jobs report released yesterday, showing the unemployment rate down to 7.8%. he is followed by the republican response given by the rnc chair. >> hi, everybody. four years after the worst economic crisis of our lifetime, we are seeing signs that at the nation, we are moving forward again. after losing about 800,000 jobs among when i took office, our businesses have added 5.2 million jobs over the past two and a half years. on friday, the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are getting jobs. too many of our friends and neighbors are still looking for work are struggling to pay the bills. many of them long before this crisis hit. we owe it to them to keep moving forward. we have come too far to turn back now. we have made to much progress to return to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place. two years ago we had a place tougher rules for wall street to make of the kind of crisis we have been fighting back from never happens again. these rules means that big banks are no longer going to
at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls moving in their directions. one of the top priorities tonight is to maintain that trajectory. the romney campaign
folks would say obama talked longer and the obama side would say romney talk longer. >> president obama talked about 5 minutes or so -- 4.5 minutes more than romney. but i think romney was better. less was more. on the side of the room, yes, sir. >> i was wondering, have you seen any differences in the senate races where republicans associate with the tea party? if not, how could turn out affect that? -- how could turnout affect that? >> there are a lot of important races in november, not just the presidential. i do not know the answer. there are a lot of very close senate races, like charlie was talking about, in states that product -- in states that romney is probably going to win. missouri, north dakota, arizona. there are 4 states where democratic senate candidates are running very competitively with republican candidates in republican states. i just did a poll and joe connolly was ahead by two points. another truism of american politics is that people usually vote their party. i think that is going to be an interesting dynamic the next 4.5 weeks. massachusetts is a good example fro
're talking about. and barack obama immediately goes down and starts looking at his paper again. >> why didn't he bring an oxygen tank, the theory about the altitude. a couple things. first of all, everyone thought, well, this is obama's strong suit, so of course he's going to do well. that's why it still resonates because he did badly. he didn't do well, number one. number two, people say debates don't matter. guess what, they do if you blow it. and number three, what's interesting going forward into this week, i think it puts pressure on joe biden, maybe exactly what the obama team didn't want, which is biden to feel the pressure of having to do well, which maybe is not a good place for biden to be. >> he's going to be great. he's going to be great. >> he's going to have fun. he's actually going to -- >> he is used to it. >> yes. >> unlike the president. >> and his decades working in congress will help. i think paul ryan is outmatched. you know what? whenever we say this before the debate, we set them up. sam stein, do you agree? >> i thought the president did wonderful. no. i'm surprised
the governor of massachusetts. caller: obama talks to him like he is still the governor. he should be styled as the former governor. he is not the governor. everybody thinks he is still the governor of massachusetts, but he is not. host: it is one of those honorific titles that stays with you. caller: ex-governor sounds better, like ex-president. host: thank you for your calls. more political coverage, coming up. we will take you to west virginia for the governors' debate. this is a rematch from 2010, when the had a special election, because joe manchin was elected to the u.s. senate. and the vice president's debate is coming up on thursday night. we will have coverage coming up at 7:00. it is a 90 minute debate. we will follow that with your phone calls and more. here is how things stand with the presidential debate. the next one is a week from today, on long island. that will be a town hall format. the last debate will be on monday the 22nd, in florida. yesterday, mitt romney spoke about foreign policy, and laid out some of his foreign-policy principles. here is a tweet that says he discus
talk. peter from ireland says george bush was the problem, not obama. let us know what you think. join in the conversation right here on "worldwide exchange." we'll get to some of your comments a little bit later in the show. time for a quick break. still to come, we'll bring in a democratic and republican strategist to grade the performance of president obama and mitt romney. >>> welcome to "worldwide exchange." these are your headlines from around the world. an aggressive mitt romney comes out swinging in his first debate with president obama. the two men sparring over how to fix the u.s. economy. waiting on spain, the ecb expected to hold steady on rates as central bankers meet today. country's president tells cnbc that europe's policymakers must remain focused. and madrid sees solid demand and yields coming down as the finance minister heads to london to raise funds for the country's bad banks. if you're just tuning in, thanks very much for coming along. ross will be back tomorrow. but i'm here for the next 30 minutes to run you through what's going on on the markets around the wor
it was good. >> i'll bet you if you asked both supporters to romney folks would say obama talked longer and they -- >> president obama talked about five minutes or so. 4.5 minutes more than romney but i think romney's -- romney was better. less was more. the side of the room, yes sir? >> my name is ben salisbury. i was wondering if you have seen in the close senate races any difference between races where the republicans are associated with the tea party and if not, maybe how turnout would affect that? >> that is, there are a lot of important races in november. not just the presidential and i think, i don't know the answer because what i was thinking was there were a lot of very close senate races that charlie was talking about in states that from my perspective that ron is probably going to win like indiana, missouri, north dakota, arizona. probably more. there are four states where democratic senate candidates are running very competitively with republicans in republican states and some are even ahead. i just did a battleground survey in indiana with a republican pollster and joe donn
're not withdrawing from the world. president obama talks about making more commitments to east asia than in the past. i do not see any prospect. >> it is so overwhelmingly impossible. >> the united states is still the most powerful country on earth. i do not think i heard anything to suggest any other country -- the united states may have fewer capabilities going forward relative to the world, there is no one country that is likely to be a competitor or replacement for the united states. we have a unique capacity. it is therefore able to assess it its interests in shipping the international environment so it can have a geopolitical phase that is cross regions and allows the united states to pursue interests and all the different ways. >> you talk about the far right. the high point of republican isolationism is when pat buchanan got whatever percentage of the vote he got a downturn 1992. there has not been another person in the republican party -- ron paul has not occurred yet. the nominee ron paul has not occurred. every candidate rigid and that we are not on the record here -- there was no isolati

for the night which will focus on domestic policy. president obama joking about it yesterday, talking to a supporter at a phone bank in nevada. >> they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> mitt romney put his spin on the debates last night, as well, at a rally in denver. trying to frame how they would be judged. >> and what, in my view, it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's -- it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choice as to what kind of america they want. >> based on the latest cnn national poll we showed you, there is a lot at stake. the candidates within the margin of error on each other. sean spicer is the communications director for the republican national committee. he joins us now from the republican national committee headquarters in washington, d.c. and sean, do you agree with republican nominee mit
barack obama can be heard praising his former pastor jeremiah wright. he talked in his speech about wanting to him all this sorts of help to poor people. then candidate obama was talking about iraq war veterans with post traumatic stress disorder. but i'm sure it's better politics for the right if they shorthand iraq war veterans as poor people while also calling mr. obama angry and describing him as having an accent. it's not subtle but i'm
. then candidate obama was talking about iraq war veterans with post traumatic stress disorder. but i'm sure it's better politics for the right if they shorthand iraq war veterans as poor people while also calling mr. obama angry and describing him as having an accent. it's not subtle but i'm sure they think it's great politics. so tonight has been an unsettled big night. tomorrow night is going to make tomorrow look like a traffic
obama's talked about reducing the corporate rate to 28%, but he hasn't specified how he'd pay for it. and then you have the issue of jobs. romney talks about the job record on net from the beginning of president obama's term. and if you do that, it's just about even. maybe a few jobs in the positive territory. but barack obama talks about what's happened since early 2010 since the turnaround started. they'll clash on that. on medicare, the big entitlement spending issue that threatens the bunch the long term. mitt romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can
to that question we just talked about obama will say, no, answer that question and that will generate an exciting back and forth and make for a great debate. sfeefrnlt it all goes down that way. james, thank you so much. have fun in denver. >>> coming up, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell joins me live what does he make of the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows president obama and governor romney tied with a among voters would an interest in the leeks. >>> earlier today, the president tweeted 20 years ago today, i married the love of my life and my best friend. happy anniversary, michelle. first lady, twitter replay, thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. i love you. "ever ask somebody to lend you a foot?" "who thinks about stuff like that?" "vince mahe grew up on two continents... and noticed that wherever you go, people have their hands full, but their feet free." "the result? a liftgate you operate with your foot." "code name?" "open sesame" "the all new twenty thirteen ford escape. it's what happens when you go further." >>> our special prime
perhaps will be obama coming after him, not him coming after obama. >> chris, when you talk about the president potentially going after mitt romney, do you mean in terms of stylistic aggression, or do you means in terms of trying to nail him as a flip-flopper or going really aggressively against his policies. which do you mean? >> i would say this. you are promising something new. you keep saying i've got something new. everything you've said sounds like what we got rid of because we had a disaster. as you showed with this excellent opening tonight, we came out of disaster because of those policies. tell me how you're going to be different than w. say the word "w.," you don't even want to say that word. admit where you came from. and then force him to get out there on the cliff and say, i'm going to get rid of the homeowner deduction, get rid of the charitable deduction, because that's the only way you have revenue neutrality in these tax cuts he's talking about. his only plan for economic improvement in this country is to cut the taxes mainly of the rich. that's his only plan. th
with president obama when we talked about drilling and gas prices went up and we had the financial implosion and president obama went on to win. is this a concern for the white house? it has to be. >>eric: a couple of states including wisconsin, and ohio, gasoline prices have soared over the last couple of months, in some cases 50 cent as gallon. these are important states for both candidates? >>guest: this will be more of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the peo
talked about his five boys, that was racist because it was romney suddenly calling obama boy. >> sean: how desperate are they? they seem they're freaking out, panic and desperate? >> they are. let's understand something, as every day comes in, the polls get worse, we go from dishonest -- we started with untruthful, now dishonest, and now lying. god knows what it will be by the end of this week. the point is -- let me just say this. this is the biggest debate victory probably since 1980. >> sean: it is. >> in terms of a single debate, in terms of the margin but more importantly what it did for romney was, the number of people it gave them a chance to see. the problem with the lying strategy, the people that watch "60 minutes," within five days they would have put up ads promoting their debate victory. the fact is it was big. it helped romney a lot. we went from 30%, almost doubling the 53% among uncommitted voters that he cared about people, his favorability -- i've been waiting for more polls. we finally got pew. some of the polls are slow on this. the thing i find is the election is
it now? >> no. not at all. >> the guy said obama couldn't talk frankly because is he black, marianne, and you say, what? i say that's not true. >> fight back that's not true. powers, what do you say? >> it's insane. that's not true and insane. why do these people do it? i mean, if this injecting race into this. >> they are trying to make excuses for a very bad performance. >> the air was too thin al gore and he couldn't talk because is he black. >> desperation, really it is. >> bill: desperation too kind a word. insane. that was accurate. >> bad night. >> i want to talk to you moment about this senate race in massachusetts with brown and warren, you you are not involved in this are you, marianne, are you working for warren? >> i am not, members of my firm are, however. >> bill: the polls say it's about even, right? >> that's right. very close race. in a state where barack obama is expected to win by at least 20 points here at least 12% of reporters want to send a democrat for a second term. she has every advantage right now. the problem is she has got to close a deal. this is a state
with never missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious indiv
different. >> you were just in iran, what did you make of mitt romney's strong words on iran? >> he talks about how he would not lead iran did away with having a nuclear weapon. already, barack obama has imposed the harshest sanctions in history on iran. it is hard to imagine any other president being able to do that. george w. bush was not able to impose a similar level of sanctions. it took obama going out there and saying that he would meet with the iranians. that allowed him to form his coalition. i do not -- i really am waiting for mitt romney to lay out specifics on how you would be different than obama. >> how did he talk about what happened in benghazi and the death of the ambassador without seeming to exploit it? >> he sort of said obama botched the response to benghazi. frankly, his first response was not the best response. he botched his first response in terms of coming out swinging, politicizing it to soon. there is a hesitancy for him to politicize it again. there is this window opening for mitt romney and he wants to take it. you can say the administration dropped the ball,
of talking about each other, president obama and mitt romney talked directly to one another meeting on stage for the first time for their first debate. mitt romney and president obama speaking about their plans to fix the nation's economy. >> governor romney has a perspective that says, if we cut taxes, skew towards the wealthy and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. >> i don't want to cost jobs. my priority is jobs. and so what i do is i bring down the tax rates. >> reporter: the republican nominee revealing his plan to reduce the deficit. >> what things would i cut from spending? >> i will eliminate all program by this test if they don't pass it. is the program so critical, it is worth borrowing money from china? if it's not, i'll get rid of it. >> governor romney rote what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. >> as president, i will sit down on day one, the day after i get elected, i'll sit down with democratic leaders. >> he will also repeal obamacare on the first day which will not be very popular among democrats as you are sitt
. [applause] i will be able to talk to president obama in a way no one else can about how the economy works. we are one nation under god. >> that did become a debate moments in this primary season. >> right. it is an interesting moment. it is a moment i think may replicate itself in general election debates. i cannot imagine obama will let this question and the tax returns go unremarked. what you see there is a couple of things. romney really pivots. he uses the initial question to swing us over to obama and the democrats and how they are against wealth, supposedly. there is also the reaction from the audience. one of the thing that was striking about this year's round of primary debates was the role of that live audience and how they became the influence and how people are perceiving them. in general election debates, the audiences seem to be much more behave. clearly, the audience played a big part in the whole tone of that clip you showed. >> warren decker, these candidates have lines and talking points. how you come across conversationally rather than sound like somebody who is regurgit
trickle down -- his trickle-down approach as he said yours is. >> obama: let me talk specifically about what i think we need to do. first we have got to improve our education system. and we have made enormous progress drawing on ideas both from democrats and republicans. that are already starting to show gains in some of the toughest to deal with schools. we have a program called race to the top that has prompted reforms in 46 states around the country, raising standards in how the train teachers. i want to hire another 100,000 math and science teachers. and i want to make sure that we keep tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code governor romney and i both agree our corporation tax rate is too high. so i want to lower it particularly for manufacturing. but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies investing here in the united states. on energy governor romney and i both agree that we have got to boost american energy production and oil and na

to his nostrils and say, boop. for instance, when obama is talking during the debate i'll interrupt him and say that's what she said? ha, ha, ha. gets them every time. last week, my campaign leaked a memo telling everyone to lower expectations for my performance in these debates. as we all know barack obama is an extremely gifted speaker. you might even say he's a master debater. that's what she said? you got zing. you got zing. >> i don't know, man. fallen is giving zadakas a run for his moment on this romney impression. >>> here's the latest. >> mr. president, china is demanding that the u.s. pay back its debt in full immediately. failure to do so will bring on financial apocalypse. you need to look into that camera and convince the people of china we are good to pay back that debt. >> why you got to play me like that, china? when you loan that money to my predecessors, did you really think you were going to get it back? >> china's not budging but we have just had the results back from your latest presidential physical and it tornadoes out you have telepathic powers. look into that ca
. we had mitt romney and president obama talking about oil subsidies to oil companies versus green energy policies. what did you think about that argument. sometimes we get caught in minutia when we are getting away from reality the in the last four years, gas prices and oil prices nearly doubled doubled. what affect it has on our g.d.p. and ability pay our bills, to educate their child, it's huge. energy has to be the number one issue. it ties directly in our ability to grow jobs. >> heather: as we wrap up, do you see relief in sight anytime soon? >> relief in california, yes. relief in sight for the u.s. as a whole, no. remember, china, europe and u.s. barely growing economically. if we were to kickstart the economy there would be a huge surge in oil prices. >> one of problems in southern california, really no effective public transportation, you have to drive your car to and from work. those folks are getting hammered. that ruins their discretionary spending. it hurts retailers and small businesses. hate has a snowball affect. >> heather: what we talked about last weekend, car a
hours, bringing out "sesame street"'s couldn't saying look at president obama has been talking about this. mentioned big bird eight times. elmo five times. zero mentions about libya and zero plans to fix the economy. this is going in a very interesting direction this morning. bill: back and forth we go. thank you, john. we'll follow the campaign stoplighter in iowa. martha: we'll talk about all that "sesame street" stuff later in the show. governor romney starting his day in the key battleground state of iowa. the state carries six electoral votes. later today, president romney and governor romney head to buckeye state. ohio has of course 18 electoral votes. bill: we all know ohio is important, right? especially for republican ledger. ohio has voted for winner in last eight presidential elections. no republican has ever won the white house without winning the buckeye state. in 2008, the president beat john mccain by 300,000 votes in ohio. martha: in michigan, paul ryan got a bit fed up after getting grilled on gun violence. here is about the problem. >> does this country have a gun p
the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
. obama didn't go after romney on facts. what is your tax deductions you're talking about. he didn't say because he won't have any. biden will go after ryan their policy gay and get down to it. this will be like a cage match. biden will beat this guy like an empty drum. ryan is looking more like howdy doody every day. >> if romney was lying, rye romney lying so much why didn't the pet call him out. >> that is the point, andrea and he didn't. >> he couldn't. he couldn't argue facts. >> 9:00 a.m. on the 9th of october. roll this tape back on friday morning. >> we should do that. i just can't wait. >> by the way bob has been so grumpy lately, bill. >> i'm not grumpy at all. just because i'm not yelling at you that means i'm grumpy. >> you've been grumpy ever since the debate. >> you haven't seen me since the debate. >> you we really grumpy this morning. >> no, i did not. i had a good date last night. >> more on that later. bill: foxnews.com /americasnewsroom. hemmer@foxnews.com or at bill himmer bya. because you asked. bob's date apparently needs more disclosure. martha: talk to him in the
? >> the president obama looks nothing like the candidate obama. he talked about lowering the deficit in half, not redistributing wealth. and not, as he said, hurting the taxpayer and getting rid of broad and things like that. i think these economists look at numbers and they see reality, they feature $6 trillion in debt. and they figure it is time to move on. neil: having said that, they seem to have crunched the numbers and looked on the weakness of this recovery and concluded maybe a fresh start is in order. but doesn't factor in a smart money angle that we are missing? smart money seems to be saying that there is not much money for this recovery to be had. >> will look at their records. we have president obama who hasn't had any experience in the private sector and we have governor romney who does understand. america, yes, we do need a ceo in chief. we also need someone who understands that the business leadership to be able to broker and work in washington where there is a lot of polarized politics. governor romney is adjusting policies that democrats and republicans can agree. we need t

answer. he personalized it and talked about an american he met on the road. that's what obama is so good at. and so i think you're looking at a guy who's very well prepared. president obama has been in plenty of debates and he has plenty of things that he can talk about to direct positive thinking about his campaign. and i think tonight, unfortunately, it pains me to say it, i think there are some lefties out there that are probably questioning it right now. i'll say it again. it's a story that we're going to have to cover. we need definition from the president on exactly where he's going to go on social security. this is a huge opening. >> i think it's very important before we close the chapter on this, mitt romney made, mark my word on this ed, very serious mistakes tonight. he committed himself to things that starting next week, with joe biden is going to haunt ryan and haunt him in these next three debates. >> i don't see that. >> i think whatever your judgment or my judgment or anyone's judgment on president obama, it will come back to serve him well that mitt romney committed himse

had no answer. mitt romney said president obama you talk about a few tax breaks for the oil and gas industry. you have given much more tax breaks to the alternative energy energy and you have nothing to show for it. president obama just looked at him. at the end of the day barack obama couldn't engage on substance last night. the facts aren't going to get any better between thousand and the next two debates. the alternative energy market is not going to start working in the next two weeks. the obama economic policies aren't going to be working in the effect two weeks. it wasn't about style. it's about substance and obama not being able to stand on his own record. that record is not going to change between now and the next debate. martha: thank you for being with us today. bill: president obama telling the american people there is one pledge he will always keep. >> four years ago i said i'm not a perfect man and i'm no won't be a perfect president. that's probably a promise governor romney thinks i have kept. you i promised i would fight every single day for the american people and t
's talk about a piece on cnn.com. you gave president obama some tips on how to win the first debate. >> right. >> writing in part, this is a great little read. you wrote my final piece of advice is most simple. stay nice. no, you're likable enough comments. no jokes about dogs on top of the car, >> reporter: marking about how rich romney is, no patronizing lecturing when he has his facts wrong. just stay nice. but looking back, i mean, you say he didn't do so badly but by all accounts the president remained calm, maybe too calm for some of his supporters, didn't engage in the attacks, didn't use the bain capital, didn't use the 47% attacks, and -- and the overwhelming consensus, of course, was that romney won. what's your advice for him for the next debate? do you still say stay nice, stay calm in the. >> the first two pieces in that column may not be at pithy and important in my view, number one, this election is a choice. it's not a referendum on the president. it's a choice. which policies are you going to like better? and what we found in the debate was that mitt romney kind of
, president obama was in fairfax. the president talked about more than just jobs today. >> hello, patriots. >> reporter: in a performing arts hall filled mostly with women, the jobs report wasn't all president obama wanted to talk about. women's health care was another focus and the president's defense of what even he now proudly calls obama care. >> i don't think a working mom in arlington should have to wait to get a mammogram because money is tight. i don't think a college student in fairfax or charlottesville should have to choose between textbooks or the preventive care she needs. that's why we passed this law. i'm proud of it. >> reporter: in contrast a shaky debate performance the president energetically jabbed back at his opponent, accusing mitt romney of misleading americans by promising to repeal obama care. >> and then his campaign had to come out and say, actually, that's not true or plan wouldn't do that. so, governor romney was fact checked by his own campaign. that's rough. that's rough. even they know his plan would take away coverage for tens of millions of americans. >> r
people talking. many are still buzzing about the first face-off between president obama and mitt romney and whether the president's re-election chances took a hit thanks to what even his team says was a lackluster performance. our john king and wolf blitzer talked about some of the game-changing moments in presidential debate history. >> let's go back in history and take a look, wolf, and let's start with 1980. watch the carter/reagan race play out in the polls right here, their one and only debate. if you look at it, ronald reagan had come from behind and moved slightly ahead of jimmy carter. the question was he up to it, was this actor ready to be president? a lot of people think this was the moment that sealed the deal. >> are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? is america as respected? >> fast forward to 2,000, bush/gore race, know how close it was at the end. look at the gyrations, right after the republican co
troubling parallel that barack obama is drawing there. bill: in the speech he talked about the spirit of empathy. i think that was around the enron time, because he talked about the employees of enron feel that they've been violated. how did that fit into this argument, or this speech that he was make stph-g. >> yo making? >> as far as that goes i agree. enron was run by a bunch of crooks, and they deserved to go to jail and many of them did. obviously there was justifiable anger, people lost their retirement and pensions, but to equate that as he does later in the speech saying, well, you know, a community has had this company there, it's provided jobs for many years, and the company decides to shut down, because of economic conditions, that's a form of violence, you know, that could be used to justify all kinds of behavior, and not just union strikes, but actual union violence. bill: you pointed to a ""washington post"" interview in 2007. that is five years ago. what emerged from that interview that caught your eye? >> well, barack obama was the community organizationer. the father
